5th August 2018 - WMoF2018 in Newcastle West

This weeks programme brings the WMoF2018 closer to home with a discussion about the upcoming events in Newcastle West to mark the occasion on 11th August when Maria Culloty and Kathleen Sugrue join John and Lorraine in studio on this weeks programme. We have our regular reflection on this weeks Sunday gospel, a run through the celestial guides for the week as well as other bits and pieces.

WMoF2018 in Newcastle West


On this weeks programme Mariah Culloty and Kathleen Sugrue (members of Newcastle West Parish Liurgy Group) join John and Lorraine to share with us some of the local parish plans for marking World Meeting of Families 2018 in Newcastle West. On Saturday August 11th at the 6.30pm Vigil Mass there is a special theme of "Celebration of Families" where there will be music, specially prepared prayers and reflections, a vibrant and welcoming atmosphere and also a cup of tea or coffee afterwards. Newcastle West parish would like to extend a warm welcome to everyone to come along and join in on this celebration.

Mariah and Kathleen also chat about the importance of supporting and connecting with families as a church and why the theme of joy is essential both for the WMoF21018 and for sharing our faith.

You can listen to the interview excerpted from the main programme HERE.



Gospel - John 6:24-35


When the crowd saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there,
they themselves got into boats
and came to Capernaum looking for Jesus.
And when they found him across the sea they said to him,
"Rabbi, when did you get here?"
Jesus answered them and said,
"Amen, amen, I say to you,
you are looking for me not because you saw signs
but because you ate the loaves and were filled.
Do not work for food that perishes
but for the food that endures for eternal life,
which the Son of Man will give you.
For on him the Father, God, has set his seal."
So they said to him,
"What can we do to accomplish the works of God?"
Jesus answered and said to them,
"This is the work of God, that you believe in the one he sent."
So they said to him,
"What sign can you do, that we may see and believe in you?
What can you do?
Our ancestors ate manna in the desert, as it is written:
He gave them bread from heaven to eat."
So Jesus said to them,
"Amen, amen, I say to you,
it was not Moses who gave the bread from heaven;
my Father gives you the true bread from heaven.
For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven
and gives life to the world."
So they said to him,
"Sir, give us this bread always."
Jesus said to them,
"I am the bread of life;
whoever comes to me will never hunger,
and whoever believes in me will never thirst."
